The Massachusetts Soldiers Legacy Fund (MSLF) was established to help children of Massachusetts servicemembers who have died while deployed on operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom. The MSLF grants funds for current and future college/university students whose parent’s “home of record” at the Department of Defense was Massachusetts and who were killed on deployment during Operations Enduring or Iraqi Freedom. There is no selection process. If the student is a child of a servicemember whose service is credited to Massachusetts and gave his or her life in Operation Enduring or Iraqi Freedom, that student qualifies for funds.
